The two people found dead at the Pelican Point Fishing Access Site near Craig on Sunday appear to have died from carbon monoxide poisoning.

According to the Cascade County Sheriff’s Office, the two people have been identified as Randy Rodencal, 66, and Alta Rodencal, 82, both of Lewistown.

The Sheriff’s Office stated nothing is suspicious about the deaths at this point in the investigation.

The cause of deaths appear to be accidental due to carbon monoxide poisoning from a generator.

The investigation will continue until the toxicology report returns from the Montana State Crime Lab.
